Düsseldorf (Germany), April 20, 2016 – At POWTECH 2016, GEA will showcase its new easyscale separator for downstream pharmaceutical applications. Suitable for use in research laboratories, universities and pilot plants, the economical and simple-to-operate easyscale offers a basic machine with a universal frame that can be fitted with one of four bowl variants – clarifier, separator and nozzle, self-cleaning and chamber bowl – depending on the process requirements.
GEA’s easyscale has been designed for continuous clarification or separation functions, such as clarifying liquids/suspensions, concentrating solids and separating liquid mixtures, in the chemical, biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors, and for research, education and training purposes. Example applications include harvesting bacterial, yeast and mammalian cell culture fermentation broths, the separation of inclusion bodies, cell debris and precipitated proteins, and the extraction of plant ingredients.
User-friendly handling, low investment and operating costs
The bowl is quick and simple to change, the product feed is gentle and takes place in a closed system and, with GEA’s softstream technology, the liquid phase is discharged under pressure. The easyscale meets all the relevant standards in safety, hygiene and product quality.
As such, the entry level easyscale from GEA, which is designed for simplicity, quality and economy, offers a number of distinct advantages: maximum scale-up reliability, minimal investment, installation and operating costs, optimum process control and higher specific capacities.
